After a while of not hearing anything new around GEEEK’s most anticipated cased, the GEEEK M5. We finally have some good news that will likely see us get the case before the end of the year, right in time for Christmas and the upcoming chips from AMD and Intel.
About an hour ago GEEEK took to Twitter to share an update on the upcoming GEEEK M5 case, sharing that it is waiting for the final sample unit before heading into production. This final unit will almost certainly be the finished product and will fix a few issues the team have had with previous sample units they’ve received from the factory.
If the final sample unit is given the go ahead from GEEEK, we can expect to see the case go into production before the end of the month. Permitting there are no production delays or delays in getting the final sample.
The new spine
Looking at a previous tweet from GEEEK, we can see the spine has two height options, low and high, set-in place with screws. The shorter option looks to allow for the AOI support promised in the spec sheet, along with slim 120mm fans. The more exciting position for us is high as it allows for an AIO to be added, also with slim 120mm fans, or added room for an SFX-L power supply which come with a larger 120mm for improved cooling and lower sound when running large loads.
The Taiwanese SFF case maker shared the new feature on Twitter, giving us a better insight into what the case will be. So far it seems like it will be the most customisable case yet. Looking at the image from GEEEK it appears that the center spine is behind the manoeuvrability, likely thanks to two sets of screw wholes on the back and front of the case to let you choose a preferred position.
GEEEK hasn’t said anything about the clearances with the positioning of the spine but looking at the specs listed on GEEEK’s website we can assume that the CPU cooler height can either be 52mm or 65mm and the GPU width can either be 55mm or 70mm.
